What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? The picture captures the essence of my friend's cheerful personality. I am pleased that I was able to keep the subject sharp whilst putting the background slightly out of focus so that it doesn't interfere with the portrait. By setting my subject off-centre I hope I have added to the interest of the picture. There is a child's football on the lawn in the background and I must obtain some software in order to edit the picture and get rid of the ball.
